Mayweather Announces: I'm Coming Out of Retirement in 2020!

Mayweather's Instagram announcement was as straightforward as it gets: "Coming out of retirement in 2020", he wrote.

The timing of the statement seems freaky after he told Reuters earlier this week he was done with the "very brutal sport" of boxing.

Mayweather already reneged on his retirement once to take on the Irish MMA fighter, with the unbeaten Michigan-man now again considering swapping the ring for the octagon.

"You have got to know when to hang it up", Mayweather said.

Mayweather and White worked together as part of that fight with McGregor two years ago and it proved a lucrative affair for all involved.

Mayweather's announcement came shortly after he posted a picture of himself and UFC president Dana White sitting next to each other courtside at a Celtics-Clippers NBA game in Los Angeles.

The undefeated boxer will say one thing and then tell the media and press another thing and claim he never said that at the same time. Mayweather has toyed in the past with a challenge posed to him by UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov but that potential bout appears to have stalled, particularly with Mayweather reaffirming in recent days that he has received offers to make an official comeback but he has resisted them.

'I think I make more doing that than most fighters make fighting'. "I make great money doing exhibitions - between $10 [million] and $30 million", he said. Fans are hoping to see Mayweather perform in a rematch against Manny Pacquiao but for the last couple of years, Floyd has been adamant that he is retired from prizefights. The last time we saw him in a huge boxing match was 2017 when he fought against the likes of Conor McGregor. Mayweather was spotted Wednesday night in Los Angeles sitting with UFC president Dana White at the National Basketball Association game between the LA Clippers and Boston Celtics.
